Thattai is one of the most popular jar snacks in South India.
So wonderful does it taste with tea that you will find even small tea shops stocking this scrumptious deep-fried snack in their glass jars!
Thattai is a flat, round-shaped, deep-fried snack made with a perfect mix of rice flour, urad flour and spices. The proper proportions of ingredients are very important to ensure that the Thattai turns out crisp.
So, follow this recipe perfectly. Also, if you find your Thattai puffing up while deep-frying make some holes with a fork and then deep-fry.
You can also try other South Indian jar snacks like Chakli and Ribbon Sev .
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, mix well and knead it into a soft dough using enough water.
- Divide the dough into 25 equal portions.

- Flatten 1 portion of the dough on it and lightly press the dough with your fingers evenly to make a 75 mm. (3”) diameter round circle. Remove from the plastic and keep aside.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make 24 more circles.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, deep-fry a few thattais at a time on a slow flame, till they golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
